Badge is used to tag entities with concise and relevant information.
Badges help the users to understand the difference between multiple entities by displaying concise metadata of that entity as a label.
Solid style is used to highlight important information on the page so that they can be recognized easily. Solid style helps the badge to easily pop out in a page.
Subtle style is used when a lot of entities on a single page need tagging/labelling. In that case, using solid badges becomes a bit overwhelming e.g. tags in a list. This is why subtle badges use the lightest shade of the colors.
